How can I Filter a dataset with fields from 2 tables.

Hello,
I am a newbie on NAV. Would like to ask for your expertise.
Created a form with a TableBox control. also set a table name "A" as its 'SourceTable' properties, in the TableBox I also add 2 fields " B1,B2" which from Table "B", It's OK,but user want to filter the data with B1.B2, Now question is: I can get the filter string from user by a "Dialog" windows , but how can I filter the data? Becuase the variable 'REC' is subjec to table A, it has no the B1,B2 fields.
Thank you.

    The easiest way to solve this is to define B1 and B2 as FlowFields in Table A.

    Other options (messy, slow, expensive):
    • Set the filters for B1, B2 in a worksheet style (e.g. like sales price); You need then to modify OnFind and OnNext triggers on the page in order to do the filtering
    • create a table as a copy of table a, but include fields B1, B2. use this table as a temporary sourcerecord on the page and fill it with records not regarding filters on B1, B2; Make sure changes to the temporary table are propagated to real table A, and temporary Rec is not used anywhere where real Table A is expected.
